It was a story about a girl who lived in a citadel and the world was about to be destroyed and she met a boy named Delos (I believe) but I don't remember her name. Not much to go on but I remember I loved this book when I was young and I have tried everything I can think of to look it up...

  • What do you mean by about to be destroyed? (natural) apocalypse of some sort? Sun dying? Implosion/Explosion? Human war (nuclear or otherwise)? Ice age? – Trish Ling Jan 8 '15 at 14:57

  • I vaguely remember Z for Zachariah is like this, but that was a valley not a citadel, and after the end not before. Anything you can add might help. – Radhil Jan 8 '15 at 18:29
  • I think it was like earthquakes or some sort of natural disaster but the ruling class had fore-knowledge of impending disaster and were prepared with spaceships. Delos was a common boy and wasn't allowed to be around her but they bonded anyway and he saves her life. I hate myself right now for not being able to remember more – user40267 Jan 9 '15 at 18:33
